Hi Admins,

My group is currently running SAS 9.4M6 with EG 8.1. 

 

I need to upgrade my client software for the group and I'm trying to decide if I should go to v 8.2 with all the hotfixes to match another SAS group's software at my company OR upgrade to v8.3 which is listed as "a maintenance release that addresses reported issues in the SAS Enterprise Guide software."

 

Am I understanding it correctly that v8.3 does not contain more features but rather "all the bug fixes"?

 

Thanks for your help!

Denise

There is no harm in ugrading to the latest version (8.3 Update 6 (8.3.6.200)) using the EG  - Check for Updates option on the Help menu. You will need admin access on your computers to do it though. There is not a lot of difference between 8.2 and 8.3, in fact the documentation doesn't include any "what's new" features.

Thanks, SASKiwi.  

I did not find anything but that maintenance statement when I searched for new features of v8.3 and wanted to be sure.

 

My company deploys the client software with automated packages; I don't have any control over the process other than providing the depot for that team to package up what I need (unfortunately).
